Original GIANT Store Front

our history

In 1923, David Javitch opened a two-man butcher shop called the Carlisle Meat Market. Our mission today remains the same as it did on opening day: offer the best products at the fairest price. With over 200 stores, we've grown to become one of the largest grocers in the region.
